1.bat; then later it shows empty again. How are you going to help me resolve this issue, sir? I have tried: Have typed attrib -s -h -r /s /d. I think it was caused by: Maybe virus. This might be due to the infected flash drive I used on my system yesterday.

Hi Daniel, the problem is with the flash drive?

I used drag and drop to move folders on my desktop to a flash drive. Before checking, I deleted the folders on the desktop. The flash drive under properties shows all the data and photos are there but when I go to the files on the flash drive some of them show 0 files found. I don't know how to recover this information and photos. I would appreciate any help. Ken. I have tried: Several solutions using cmd command and none of them worked. I think it was caused by: I didn't format the flash drive because it came right up as E drive. When I went to try and defrag it would not come up under defrag. I put another flash drive that had been formatted my me and it came right up under defrag. The flash drive that I have the problem with shows the files and some show empty most of the ones with photos.
